NOAA watching tropical wave near Dominican
Alerts are being issued for a potential tropical storm that could potentially go anywhere from as far south as the tip of Cuba to the center of Florida. Currently the wave, described as “vigorous” by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), is producing a large number of storms and conditions are such that there is a 60 percent chance of the system becoming a tropical depression or storm by Thursday evening, with early maps showing a potential Friday landfall somewhere in South Florida. The storm could potentially be Tropical Storm Bonnie.
Either way it’s likely to be a wet weekend. Consider checking your trees for loose branches and coconuts. BrowardNETOnline.com will update the site, Facebook and Twitter via cell phones if power goes out. We have hurricane resources here if you need any suggestions on how to plan.
